Guitar-pop album of the year. No contest.
to play their instruments yet? they sound great on record but shambolic whenever i've seen them live.
can't even play the kazoo.
written a guitar pop album of the year.
excepting 1972 of course.
the album was made of pork.
But then quite, quite brilliant when I saw them at Bestival two weeks later
I haven't heard this album yet but I know this much: It would be better still if Fulwood Babylon was on it
...because I saw them at Reading and yes, they were the most boring thing I saw all weekend.
If I liked the Long Blondes I'd be ashamed to say so in public. So, so, so, SO ashamed.
TRUE ACTUAL FACT!!!!
where most men have a penis.
that's a very personal attack for very little reason mr crabs
it was at Stealthy.
i'd never insult you, budgerigar.
I served up my chipolata with your mum's nutmeg last night. Then afterwards we talked about how much of a disappointment you are to her because you like the Long Blondes.
It was cathartic.
You are not.
Once again sir, the facts have got the better of you.
...or is it?
There isn't a weak track on it. Pure indie pop (Blondie meets Pulp and ABC in a back alley) brilliance.
but Swallow Tattoo is one of the best pop songs I've heard in the past 12 months. If that isn't a single, I'll gnaw my arm off.
They are a band that are greater than the sum of their parts - they can't play very well, the vocals are competent at best and the tunes are basic, but they the songs themselves are really impressive. They have a great writer in the band.
Good fun band.
Nothing more, but you need bands like that.
Now if the Little Flames had an album out, I would be excited...
and Put Your Dukes Up John were both toooooons
What happened to the Little Flames?
